Campus City Center

On the following page you will find different running and Nordic-walking tracks at the Campus City Center.

All tracks start somewhere between the K1 and K2 buildings. There are two different running tracks with lengths of 4,5km and 8km as well as a walking track with 2,4km.

So let’s go! Put on your running shoes and grab your cell phones and start! You just have to download the GPX-file of the track you want to run or walk onto your smartphone and open it with a navigation app (e.g. Komoot, OsmAd or GPX-Viewer). An alternative is to download it onto your fitnesstracker or smartwatch via the manufacturer program (e.g. for Suunto: Movescout and for Garmin: Basecamp)

Note: At the moment there is no possibility to change your clothes or take a shower at the Campus City Cemter.
